Brooke Linsenbardt is a doctoral candidate in the Department of History at Texas A&M University, under the direction of Dr. Angela P. Hudson.  Her work incorporates oral histories, documentary sources, and indigenous feminisms to examine women’s educational practices, or the transgenerational transmission of knowledges, to protect, maintain and sustain ways of knowing, kinship relationships within being and sovereignties.  Her dissertation focuses on the epistemological practices of the transnational Native movements of the 1970s and 1980s within the following distinct contexts: the creation and running of two Ojibwe survival schools, two Yaanga (Los Angeles) Indian Centers, the National Congress of American Indians, and two youth and community organizations. 

As a non-Native scholar, Brooke believes in the necessity of listening, reciprocity and community-based research.  The Cheyenne River Youth Project (lakotayouth.org), a Lakota youth organization of Wakpa Wasté, is a consistent influence in her life and she extends the deepest gratitude and love to the CRYP family and the community.
